Difficult Personal Update

I just got home from a nearly two week UK vacation.  I had a nice time visiting with my hubby’s family in London and Coventry, but unfortunately the trip was overshadowed by some sad news from back home.  My dad, who has been battling cancer for years, has taken a turn for the worse.  It’s crazy because he flew to California in December for my wedding and was doing pretty well.  Unfortunately, cancer complications can flare up suddenly and now he is barely coherent and barely hanging on.  I tried to alter my return flight to head straight to Miami (where my parents live) but the airline was unable to work with me.  I just arrived back in LA last night and will be flying out to Florida tomorrow. Things are pretty hectic and honestly I’m exhausted.  I wanted to share this because I haven’t updated in a while and I’m not sure when I’ll post again with everything going on.  I do want to blog about my time in England, though I won’t get to it just yet.  Right now my priority is to be there for my dad, as well as my mom and younger brother.  They’re by my dad’s side everyday at the hospital and I know they’re getting burnt out.  For now, I want to share these pictures from my wedding last December.  Dad was so happy and had such a nice time visiting with us.  I can’t believe he’s deteriorated so drastically, and I’m sure it won’t really hit me until I get there, which I’m not 100% prepared for.  I know I don’t have a lot readers just yet, but for anyone listening, your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
